Office of Residence Life

David is the Director of Residence Life. He enjoys working in Residence Life because it gives him the opportunity to interact with a wide variety of students, faculty, and staff all working towards the same goal - to provide housing in which engaging, supportive, and safe communities develop.

In his spare time, David enjoys traveling, cooking, watching movies, TV, spending time with loved ones, and concerts (especially Jimmy Buffett).

David has worked in student affairs administration since 2007. Prior to working at Merrimack, he was the Assistant Director for Community Standards at Mount Ida College. Before Mount Ida, he served as a Residence Director at Stonehill College.
